Reserve A Study Carrel

Seniors doing honors projects and students doing independent study projects may reserve a study carrel in H-L Library, Hatch Science Library, Beckwith Music Library, or Pierce Art Library. These are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, with sign-up beginning on September 4. Other students may apply for carrels beginning October 18, if any are available.

Students will be asked to agree to these terms and conditions before reserving a carrel.

Library materials may be left on the reserved carrel, but must be checked out first and renewed as necessary.

For further information, please contact:

Terms and Conditions

All items on your carrel must be checked out to you.  Any material not checked out will be removed, e.g., reference material and periodicals.  View loan rules here.

Remember that you are responsible for all items checked out in your name and left unattended on your carrel. Please do not leave valuables unattended. If you would like your books to remain 'sensitized', to help prevent the likelihood of theft, please let circulation staff know when you check your materials out.
